Love Is a Fat Woman

OT: El amor es una mujer gorda

Alejandro Agresti // Argentina, 1987
Fiction Feature // FF2010



In this complex political drama, set in Argentina after the demise of its military dictatorship, a young journalist’s preference for writing leftist articles endangers his job. His editor assigns him to follow the filming of an American movie. He does so, but not without making many inflammatory comments about gringo intentions. As a result, he is fired. This frees him to begin looking for his estranged lover who mysteriously vanished during the last regime. All those around him suspect that she was among the “disappeared” but he refuses to believe it.
